View Full Version : Carpal tunnel

10-27-2002, 11:52 AM
I work in the computer software industry by trade. I experience difficulties due to carpal tunnel syndrome, I have seen western physicians and specialists who have done tests and feel that my problem does not warrant surgery, ......yet.

I have done the normal things, change keyboards, try to take more breaks, adjust my environment to be more ergonomic, etc. I have even gone through a traditional physical therapy, which provided some temporary relief. But now I am noticing my hands becoming weaker, and tasks that used to be simple, like holding a pen or using a paint brush cause much pain even after a limited amount of time.

Are there any alternative treatments that can provide relief / cure this problem?
